Travel portal on Tuesday distanced itself from a tweet by one of its staff members questioning comments of Home Minister that people of have condemned the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims.

"The views expressed by Ms Suchi on Twitter are her personal thoughts and do not in anyway reflect the views of MakeMyTrip, however, we do regret the language used," said in a statement.

In an unusual rebuttal to an online troll, Home Minister today asserted that all Kashmiris were not terrorists and said it was his job to ensure peace and tranquillity in all parts of the country.

The assertion by the home minister came in response to a tweet from an "Editor of Make My Trip", a travel portal, which raised questions on his comment that the people of had strongly condemned the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims and that it showed the spirit of Kashmiriyat was very much alive.

Replying to the home minister, Suchi Singh Kalra, who by using a derogatory word, told Singh that no one cared about whether Kashmiriyat was alive or not in Jammu and but needed strong action from him against the terrorists responsible for yesterday's attack.

Singh responded: "Ms Kalra I certainly do. It is absolutely my job to ensure peace and tranquillity in all parts of the country. All Kashmiris are not terrorists."

In the Twitter profile, Kalra claimed to be an editor of the "Make My Trip". However, soon Kalra deleted the twitter account.
